(SOUNDBITE) (English) LIVERPOOL MANAGER, JUERGEN KLOPP, SAYING: "The number of interruptions in that game was just not cool.

I said it a few times, we two times in a row won the fair play what is it?

Table, whatever, in England and tonight we look like butchers when you look at the yellow cards we had.

So, it was clever of PSG, Neymar, especially him probably him, yeah, but a lot of other players went down like it was something serious and obviously we were not in our, we were not that calm anymore - we were, it makes you aggressive obviously." 2.


(SOUNDBITE) (English) PSG COACH, THOMAS TUCHEL, SAYING: "You think it's the other way around in a crucial match like that.

I've never experienced it the other way around where the team goes like to hurry that everybody has the chance to make an equaliser so don't.

For me, I don't even want to talk about it because it's not a subject.

And after I lose a big game I'm angry and I...sometimes talk about stuff just to bring the attention to something else and away from my team.

I do this also.

But it's not my issue." STORY: Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp remained positive despite seeing his side slip to a 2-1 defeat at Paris St Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday (November 29), labelling next month's winner-takes-all clash with Napoli an Anfield "final".

Group C leaders Napoli, who travel to Liverpool on Dec.

11, are three points clear of the Premier League side, but a 1-0 win, or a victory by a two-goal margin or more, will see Klopp's men reach the last 16 of the Champions League once more.

Goals from Juan Bernat and Neymar set PSG on their way to a crucial victory that revives their own Champions League campaign, meaning they will reach the knockout stages with three points against Red Star Belgrade in their final match.

Liverpool rallied after James Milner's penalty got them back in the contest, but an equaliser eluded them in the second half.

Klopp was particularly frustrated with what he thought was gamesmanship tactics by PSG in the Parc des Princes and also said home midfielder Marco Verratti was fortunate to escape a red card for a challenge on Joe Gomez in the first half.
